All you need is love
Even though I loathe St. Valentine and all that he stands for (heckle misery guts if you will but please draw the line at bitter and twisted), there are two things that make me all go all gooey inside: a handwritten note (nothing says love quite like it in this technological age) and the second? Chanel No. 5 (preferably hand-delivered by Rodrigo Santoro).
So you’ll forgive me for being rather excited by what’s happening down at the Chanel Fragrance and Beauty Boutique at Westfield Bondi Junction today and tomorrow. They’re inviting us to visit the Boutique and select a Coco Chanel love quote, which will then be handwritten by the calligrapher (on call for his scrawl) for a personalised Chanel Valentine’s Day card upon purchase of a product. A beautiful keepsake for a friend or loved one and the excuse to stock up on the divine Chanel Lift Lumière Concealer, I don’t need telling twice!
Some of Coco’s famous quotes include:
“Where should one use perfume?” – a young woman asked, “Wherever one wants to be kissed” – I said.
“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” (My favourite.)
"A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous."
It really is a truly lovely idea and one I’ll be taking full advantage of. But I know some of you can’t get to Bondi Junction so these love-ly treats are for you: Impulse True Love, Platypus Dreams Love Potion 100% Natural Soap, FLIRT! Look of Love™ Eye Pencil and Australis Nail Enamel in Valentine.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Love and lipstick to all,
Are you a romantic?
